This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.
Breakfast By The Lake: In this game players must answer correctly questions about the Bible story to receive a fish to put on their plate. Be careful not to eat all your fish and have to put all of your fish back. The player that reaches FINISH with the most fish on their plate wins.
Give each player or team a paper plate. Put all fish cards in a pile face up near the game board. Place your marker on START. Players roll the die and move their marker the number indicated on the die. If you land on the picture of an empty fishing net, you have not caught any fish and you must move back 2 spaces. Land on NO FISHING, you lose a turn. If you land on the picture of the fish the player to your left draws a card and reads it out loud. On each card is a question about the story “Breakfast By The Lake” (John 21:1-19). If you answer the question correctly, you receive a fish and you place it on your plate. If you are not correct, you must lose one of your fish and place it back in the fish pile. If a player lands on a picture of fish bones, you ate all your fish and you must put all your fish back in the fish pile. The game continues until all the players have made their way to FINISH. The player with the most fish on their plate is the winner.
